Winter Solstice


Happy Winter Solstice! The winter solstice (the shortest day of the year, and longest night) is today, Dec. 21, 2009 at 12:47 EST. After today, the days will begin to lengthen, nights get shorter! Celebrate with lights! (I built my "snow altars" yesterday to celebrate- a pillar of snow, a "cave" carved out on top, with a lighted candle inside at dusk- will try to post a photo of one.)

Spring will come soon!
